Would you say that building a surround system with these speakers would blow away or rival the pro cinema 800 system.
I listen to alot of music through my stereo but love watching movies also, so i'm looking for a system that can pull double duty.

"The top of each speaker is slightly rounded—a departure from the original flat top (and a real annoyance for those who like to set their beer cans or cocktail glasses on top of speakers during parties) ... not only is the darn thing curved on top, but that passive radiator is going to rattle your glass off the speaker for sure."

My my - who would ever even allow, let alone think of, placing a drink on top of a speaker. There are certain realities in life - like different objects were made for different purposes. Coffee tables do one thing, while speakers need to concentrate their energies on reproducing sound without the worry of tipping or rattling a glass of wine. Ugh.

Do you find it odd that the -3dB freq of the smaller and cheaper SC4000 (26Hz) extends lower than the larger and more expensive SC6000 (28Hz)? Maybe 2Hz is splitting hairs, but I was expecting more for the extra $200 and bigger size.

Also, do you think adding one of these subs to a set of BP-8080ST towers would add enough impact to justify the cost and space it takes up? (the towers measured 35Hz @ -3dB)

This is the exact system as I am going to purchase, except for the sub. I already have an SVS sub. I would like to know the what test equipment was used in this review (if possible).

I also auditioned the SM55, SM45, Totem Dreamcatcher, Mite and Rainmakers as well (same place, same components). All speakers are awesome and worthy of purchase. Has the reviewer ever listened to those Totem speakers and if so, how would you rate them compared to the SM45 and SM55 speakers?

I listen to them and two different stores even with the Denon4520 receiver they sound flat to me compare the other speakers,it don't give off the soundfield i like.
